This is a wonderful addition to the McKettrick Cowboy series. This is the story of Angus McKettrick's first born son Holt. First introduced in the McKettrick Cowboy stories, Holt had a grudge against Angus for the way that he treated Holt after the death of his mother. Ms Miller used several books to introduce and make us fall in love with Holt then she wisely gave us an entire book for Holt's story.
Summoned to Texas to help his foster father, Holt meets Lorelei, the headstrong daughter of the local judge. Soon Holt and Lorelei are butting heads but also working together to try and save 2 ranches and the life of Holt's friend. While all of this turmoil is happening around them, they are falling in love.
While you can appreciate this book as a standalone story, I would recommend reading the previous books in this series, High Country Bride, Shotgun Bride and Secondhand Bride prior to reading this book in order to get a full understand of the family dynamics that drive Holt and his brothers.
An excellent book- I could not put the book down once I started to read it.

A good edition to the McKettrick series (#4, I think?) It's been a while since I read the first three so I needed to brush up a little bit on Holt McKettrick.

The whole book takes place in about a 10 day span so the story line moves along quickly, though the book bogged down a bit here and there.

I really enjoy Miller's word usage. She often narrates like an old cowpoke whose been on the trail for a couple grizzly years. Her books, especially her historical westerns, have entertained me for years.

This is the latest book in a series about the McKettrick's family included in this series are High Plains Bride, Shotgun Bride and Secondhad bride. They were all great books.

Linda Lael Miller is known for writing heart-tugging, emotional Western romances, and with MCKETTRICK'S CHOICE, she delivers yet again. The MCKETTRICK BROTHERS TRILOGY began in 2002 with HIGH COUNTRY BRIDE, followed in 2003 with SHOTGUN BRIDE, and finished in 2004 with SECONDHAND BRIDE. The saga now takes a surprising turn in 2005 with MCKETTRICK'S CHOICE, the story of the oldest McKettrick brother, Holt, who was raised away from the iron fist of family patriarch, Angus, and the three brothers from the trilogy-Rafe, Kade, and Jeb.

Holt McKettrick spent a large part of his life as Holt Cavanagh, adopted son of John Cavanagh, a rancher with a spread outside of San Antonio, Texas. Now back in the McKettrick fold-with the tensions and egos that four competing males are bound to bring-Holt is in the process of marrying Miss Margaret Tarquin when a letter from Texas changes his plans.

The short note advises Holt that his adoptive father, John, is about to be driven from his land, and former Ranger buddy, Gabe Navarro, is to be hanged for murder and thievery. Holt, as a McKettrick and a Cavanagh, has no choice but to leave the Arizona Territory and return to Texas to set matters straight.

But upon arrival, mayhem awaits. People have been killed, lands have been burned, and one Miss Lorelie Fellows, who happens to own the land next to John Cavanagh's, is attempting to drive Holt insane.

MCKETTRICK'S CHOICE is Western historical romance at its best-lively characters, a wonderful story line, attention to historic detail, and Ms. Miller's personal brand of story-telling make this book a very enjoyable read. Mystery, suspense, passion, and family duty don't disappoint.
